Hurry, mate! You don’t want to miss this once-in- a-lifetime opportunity to stay in Toronto’s most charming and totally unique vacation accommodations. The “Captain’s Quarters” on Crawford Street, just steps from Queen St. W in the desirable Trinity-Bellwoods neighborhood welcomes you “aboard.” Inspired by luxurious yacht interiors, this architectural gem will delight you with its surprising wealth of open space and attention to detail.
The meticulous designer (and your host) labored over the tiniest details, painstakingly recreating by hand the warm wood-paneled interiors of the most luxurious cabin cruisers.
You will almost feel the relaxing swell of the ocean as you nod off to sleep on the sumptuous Queen bed dressed in crisp Pima cotton linens and plump pillows fit for a Captain.
The Captain's Quarters is perfect for a small family – there is a twin pull out couch for one child. It can also be rented along with Crawford Gardens, the upstairs apartment. Both places can sleep 7 total.
Put your feet up after day-tripping and relax with Netflix or any of the 300 channels available on the flat-screen TV. The fully adjustable sofa converts to a bed perfect for travellers with a toddler or small child. The designer kitchen is a marvel of efficiency with every chef’s desire at reach or stored conveniently in the surprisingly expansive breakfast bar that seats 3 comfortably.
But it is the Captain’s Quarters’ exquisite spa bathroom that is the piece-de- resistance. Its sleek curved walls and masterful use of space can’t accurately be captured in photographs – it must be seen to be believed. The inviting neutral white-on- white palette sets a tranquil setting for a relaxing soak in the oversize tub or cleansing shower under the rain-head feature in the marble walk-in. Heated floors and plush cotton towels and robes are the perfect pampering touches.
Other added touches you’ll appreciate include:
* Sleeps 3: The Italian-designed sofa settee folds into a very comfortable single bed.
NOTE: The Captain’s Quarters can be combined with the beautiful 1-BR space above it for a larger group of up to 7, depending on availability.
* Breakfast on us: a gift card for Nadège, one of the area’s best bakeries. (Can also be used for a midday sandwich or their mouth-watering macarons.)
*Walk-in closet with lap-top sized combination safe for your valuables.
* On-site laundry.
* Thick combed-cotton robes and for your use during your stay.
* Flat-screen TV with cable access to over 300 stations.
* Green, 100% biodegradable bath products from a local salon.
* Central heat and air conditioning
Guests in the Captain’s Quarters have access to the front porch with Muskoka chairs overlooking the front gardens.
Note: The shared backyard provides access to the garage and recycling for tenants.
Head over to nearby Trinity-Bellwoods Park, just around the corner, for some real space, with tennis courts, two volleyball courts, an artificial ice rink, a dog off-leash area, a picnic area, a wading pool and a children's playground. Also in the park is the Trinity Community Recreation Centre, with indoor pool and gym equipment.
The apartment is walking distance to parks, restaurants and even downtown! Public transportation is also nearby. Car not needed!
